Ministering to Youth
GPS – God Positioning System
A teenage boy (David) recently received his driver’s license. He is about to drive (down the Road of Life) alone for the first time. David’s mother installed a new God Positioning System (GPS) in his car to help guide his life’s journey. Unfortunately, David fails to follow the GPS’ instructions. He makes several wrong turns (i.e., bad decisions in life) which take him to unknown and dangerous places. After realizing he is lost and headed for the Road of “Destruction”, David decides to listen to his GPS to help him get to the Road of “Life”. God Positioning System is a powerful sketch for a Youth Ministry.
